Obsessions

Album: Family Jewels (2010)
  • Sunday, wake up, give me a cigarette
    Last night's love affair is looking vulnerable in my bed
    Silk sheet, blue dawn, Colgate, tongue warm
    Won't you quit your crying? I can't sleep
    One minute I'm a little sweetheart
    And next minute you are an absolute creep

    We've got obsessions
    I want to wipe out all the sad ideas
    That come to me when I am holding you
    We've got obsessions
    All you ever think about are sick ideas
    Involving me, involving you

    Supermarket, oh what packet of crackers to pick?
    They're all the same, one brand, one name, but really they're not
    Look, look, just choose something quick
    People are staring, time ticker-quicking
    Cheeks are on fire; just choose something, something, something
    Pressure overwhelming
    Next minute I am turning out of the door, facing one week without food
    A day, a day when things are pretty bad
    Don't let it make you feel sad,
    The crackers were probably bad luck anyway
    Can't let your cold heart be free
    When you act like you've got an OCD

    We've got obsessions
    I want to erase every nasty thought
    That bugs me every day of every week
    We've got obsessions
    You never tell me what it is that mades you strong
    And what it is that mades you weak

    We've got obsessions
    I want to erase every nasty thought
    That bugs me every day of every week
    We've got obsessions
    You never told me what it was that made you strong
    And what it was that made you weak
    Mades you weak, mades you weak
    made you weak, made you weak, made you weak
    Made you

    Sunday, wake up, give me a cigarette
    Last night's love affair is looking vulnerable again Writer/s: MARINA DIAMANDIS, MARINA LAMBRINI DIAMANDIS
